You're post describing yourself seemed to describe me exactly.
I've got my stereo speakers, cars, house(only this with a little
remaining to pay of).... many years ago, who needs new ones? Even my
home computer is still an old upgraded P5/90.
If the stock market keeps going up, I'll be able to pay cash
for my cryonics membership in about 10 years or less. That,
retirement as soon as possible, and leaving funds for my kids so they
can continue the growth, hopefully by them also living within their
means, is by far my biggest goal. Like you, I hate "stuff". I guess
expensive food is my weakness, largely because it doesn't collect.
